According to 2010 United Nations Reports, Latin America, has already met the Millennium Development Goal to improve access to water by 2015. However, improved water access does not necessarily imply long-term safe water access and quality is still largely unmonitored in the region. Today, 75 million people in Latin America still lack safe drinking water sources. FEMSA Foundation, as a social investment instrument, supports safe water interventions in Latin America with the support of governments, service providers, community involvement and the use of efficient technology. Long term success of these interventions requires strict monitoring, design, transparency and continued program oversight. This document focuses on the initial safe water interventions in three Latin American regions as well as the ongoing development of a participative model to promote long-term social-economic benefit that has delivered safe drinking water to more than 20,000 people in Latin America.
